Anyone who has an auto-immune disease should be aware of the foods and situations (stress, lack of exercise) which can trigger inflammation in the body. Though you cannot escape your genes, the author has done a fine job of putting together some simple, step by step menus, information for one to lower, and keep the factors for internal swelling in check. The recipes are not time taxing, and may also assist with weight loss.
I learned a lot from this book. I was able to see what kinds of foods were good for you and what ones to avoid. Theire were a lot of foods that were better to avoid then I thought. I'm glad I was able to read more about them. They have an anti-inflammatory action plan that works for everyone.
I really like the layout of this book. It gives you a lot of information about not only what foods you should eat, but also what foods you should avoid. The breakdown of the recipes is nice too because you can go right to whatever type of snack or meal you're wanting. The recipes are really easy to follow too.
There so many health concerns also linked to inflammation, like heart disease, obesity, asthma,cancer and many others.The book provides you with a list of foods to avoid and where they hide in other common foods. It also gives you a list of foods that are great for avoiding inflammation. There are varied meal plans based on your specific needs. This book was eye opening and I learned a ton of new information. This is a great resource for anyone.
This book interests me because my husband has Colitis, and I would love to find a diet that not only avoids trigger foods, but that can help his digestive system heal. It has been a long hard road with him, and I am willing to try anything that could help him. I think these foods and recipes will help me as well. I read the basics, and tonight I will pick through the recipes and see what I want to start with, which action plan to try first. I am looking forward to seeing what differences we will see with these.
This book is not well-written in a myriad of ways...the grammar and writing style are quite poor. The author is apparently rather unfamiliar with the adverb very. Instead of utilizing the word "very" to add emphasis, she writes phrases such as "you will have way more options when..." Granted, the use of the word "way" in this manner is not uncommon in some conversational speech in the United States; however, the use of this style of language and poor grammar feels like the author of this book is an uneducated teenager at best... A good demonstration of widespread decline in our ability to speak and write the English language properly!
The narration is fast, unappealing and boring - no expression whatsoever. Feels very mechanical. Between the narration and writing, I was very easily distracted and annoyed.
The length of this book is only long enough to be a very basic introduction to its topics, and does not even do that very well.
The first half or third+ of the book discusses types of autoimmune conditions and does not contain any information regarding diet. From what is written in this book, the author seems to think the only change you need to make in your diet to make it "anti-inflammatory" is to eat gluten-free. From my own personal experience with autoimmune disorders, I know that an "anti-inflammatory autoimmune diet" encompasses MUCH more than simply eliminating gluten. Each individual's body and physical constitution is unique and it is important to seek out assistance and guidance from specialized doctors, nutritionists and "alternative" healthcare providers in finding the appropriate diet to assist in controlling and reversing autoimmune disorders and inflammation. Also seeking out wise and knowledgeable guidance, books and materials regarding dietary and other healing modalities to assist with healing autoimmune conditions can be extremely helpful. This audiobook is NOT one of those quality resources. I have read and sought out a multitude of resources in my healing journey so I feel I am able make a well-educated assessment of this book. There may be a few decent recommendations on following a gluten-free diet and some basic information about a handful of autoimmune conditions, but if you want a truly helpful resource for information regarding autoimmune conditions and how to address them through diet and other modalities, you will need to seek out far superior books and resources than this one.
I CANNOT recommend reading this book or listening to the audiobook if you are serious about attaining truly useful and worthwhile information and guidance! Even as an introduction to its topics, I do not feel it is a valuable resource..in fact, I consider misleading since it implies following a gluten-free diet is equal to a fully anti-inflammatory diet. :((. At the very least, the title of the book should be changed as it does not reflect or advertise correctly the actual information contained within the book.
